Both shows have: crazy worlds full of weird shid, bizarre characters and odd plot and that's pretty much it...

Fukumo Fukumo says...

Similar crazy cities which is the norm

With strange creatures etc

Dorohedoro is more violent and gore

emocrow emocrow says...

As soon as I started Dorohedoro I was reminded of Blood Blockade Battlefront.

Both have a similar mixutre of characters with lighthearted charm and goasl with high stakes, unusual worlds where anything can happen, and a sense of mystery regarding exploring the unknown

Starletka Starletka says...

The plot of both series consists of little stories following a bunch of seemingly random crazy characters in a world of pure chaos

Dorohedoro and Dororo share a lot of similarities (including the half similar names! XD)

Both shows have

  • Violence, bloodbath
  • Satisfying fight scenes
  • Main character going on a quest to get their bodies/human form back
  • Another supportive main character accompanying them
  • Made by MAPPA 

While both shows have these common points, they are also very distinct from each other. So it's not like one is an altered version of the other. You'll surely love both of these shows if you're okay with heavy themes like explicit violence and death.

Guin Saga

Guin Saga

Princess Rinda and her brother Remus are the foretold Twin Pearls of Parros – one will be a shining prophet and the other a great ruler. However, when their homeland is lost to the invading Mongaul army and their parents slain during the siege, Rinda and Remus are transported into Rood Forest, a dangerous hideout for ghouls. Lost and vulnerable, the two barely escape death thanks to the help of a powerful man with the head of a leopard called Guin who cannot remember who is or how he became that way. Together they journey across the land, evading monsters, fighting the power-hungry Mongaul army, and gathering trusted companions such as Istavan Spellsword and Suni of the monkey-like Sem – all in the hope of fulfilling their destinies and finally bringing peace to Parros.

Halex Halex says...

Both shows have a protagonist who his head was turned into an animal and wake up without any memories of knowing who they are and what they are supposed to do. Both are good at fighting and go along helping other characters in need. Both shows have good character designs and lots of world-building.

However, Guin is a more serious show, while Dorohedoro is part comedy and easy going.

Tokyo Ghoul

Tokyo Ghoul

In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: mysterious creatures who look exactly like humans -- yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary young man, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about Ghoul society, his newfound powers, and the fine line between man and monster.

Both anime has the motif of using masks; lots of blood spilling all around; characters that are creepy and has no common sense or anything related. XD

They share a similar kind of humor, have a realy complex world with no black in white characters. Nobody is totaly evil or good, they are just human.

Although Golden Kamuy is much more family friendly, both share some moments of gore. Sometimes the gore is a marriage betwwen grotesque and hilarious.

While the storylines are a bit different, it has a bit of the same dark vibe and in my oppinion the animationstyle is much a like. Both main characters have a none human head (and also have a blonde female companion/partner). Both enjoyable anime, though my preference goes more towards Dorohedoro if I'm completely honest. No Guns Life (season 1 and season 2) should be able to fill your time in the same theme-ish until Dorohedoro season 2.

Appleseed

Appleseed

After the third world war, the organization known as the General Management Control Office constructed the city of Olympus – the only place where chaos and anarchy doesn’t hold sway. It seems unthinkable that terrorists are out to disrupt this pristine society, but the threat becomes very real to SWAT officers Deunan and Briareos when their squad mates are killed during a hostage situation. Bent on catching the lone escaped terrorist, they soon find themselves involved in a plot to undermine the whole existence of their Olympus.

In many many ways these shows are completely different. The plots are different, the genres are different and the style of each is different.

BUT one thing is very familiar between them and that is the relationship of the two leads. If you love the dynamic of Deunan and Briareos then I think you'll love that similar dynamic between Nikaido and Kaiman. They aren't cut and paste in terms of personalities but similar enough that I believe fans of either of these shows could find the others appealing, especially if the main characters were a large draw for you in either show.

Both seems to be written by psychos in a very good way, have a similar atmosphere and humor, charismatic villains, a very intricate world and very distinct art style. Storywise, they are very unlike each other but both extremely enjoyable.

Dorohedoro is one of my fav anime ever, so I'm very pleased to have found Idaten, it's like a breeze of fresh ideas in a saturated world of cliche anime.
